Spring is a real wildcard. A season defined by its highs and lows: sunshine and storms, blizzards and beach days, rained-out parties, and impromptu grill-outs. It’s this wildcard factor that keeps spring so interesting – you can be sipping margs on the patio one night and nursing a beer the next as you watch your driveway turn into an above-ground pool.
You gotta roll with the punches. That means getting adventurous with your go-to drink, pouring that daiquiri into a pineapple when the temperature exceeds 55, and savoring the bright and floral gins and vodka meant to be sipped outside amongst the woodland creatures.
Gin to get you into gin
There’s a real timeless quality to gin. It’s the kind of liquor featured in classic films… sipped by some hard-boiled detected in a grey hat from a classy crystal glass. Like the movies featuring this beloved spirit, gin has evolved throughout the decades to a point where your options are as extensive as your taste buds carry you.
Crafted with botanicals and ingredients in Germany’s Black Forest, Monkey 47 has long since shed its cult-favorite status by rising to one of the most sought-after gin brands out there. Meanwhile, in Osaka, Roku Japanese Gin combines botanicals from home (Sakura flower, Sakura leaf, Yuzu peel, Sencha tea, Gyokuro tea, and Sanshō pepper) with juniper berry, coriander seed, and cardamom for a balanced gin with distinct Japanese roots.
Welcome to the golden age of ready-to-drink beverages, where the best cocktails are served cold from your fridge – no bartenders necessary.
Might as well take the guesswork out of the equation by making this Jameson Ginger & Lime Cocktail your new favorite right now. If rum’s your go-to, Cutwater’s Tiki Rum Mai Tai combines Barrel Aged Rum and Bali Hai Tiki Gold Rum with pineapple and coconut flavors for a ready-to-drink cocktail that should always be sipped on a beach. At the very least, near a large amount of sand.

It’s craft beer season
The sun is shining, the birds are chirping, and nighttime no longer starts at 4 pm; it must be Spring. Predicted as a top beer trend of the year, craft beer is the ultimate way to celebrate warmer weather (sorry, not sorry light beer) and reflect on everything you did personally to make it possible.
Legally, we can’t guarantee one sip of Lawson’s Finest Liquids Sip of Sunshine IPA will transport you to a beautiful, tropical paradise where you’re the president and everyone loves how you look in your floral shirts.

Sip ‘em straight
“If you really want to find out if the booze is any good, you should be able to drink it straight,” says Chris Montana of DuNord Social Spirits. Chris believes in the power of a neat drink; your favorite bourbon, vodka, or scotch in a glass without ice, water, or mixers.
We think Chris is onto something here. Try this experiment with Patron, Chopin Rye Vodka, or the light and aromatic GREY GOOSE Essences Strawberry & Lemongrass Vodka. Find your favorite drinks to sip straight.
Team Drizly recently surveyed customers to see what kinds of spirits they were most interested in drinking this year.
Flying high in the sky like a bat out of heck, rum beat bourbon and American-made whiskey as the most tantalizing drink choice of the year. Ladies and gentlemen… welcome to the rum resurgence.
That means enjoying small-batch/craft options like Kasama alongside classics from Diplomatico and BACARDÍ. Drink it in a daiquiri or sip from the celebratory coconut everyone should be personally handed after making it through an entire week without engaging in a conversation about crypto.
